Pierced ears question.....

My dd & I went last Sunday together. She is fine, however my ears hurt and I have been following the instructions. They are not red, but sore now. How long until this goes away I feel like taking them out! but won't.

  • It might take two or three more weeks before the pain is completely gone. Also, if the soreness continues and you aren't wearing 14-karat gold or better, try putting in some small gold studs. Sometimes newly healing ears don't like sterling silver or other metals.

  • You can put some wax on the backs of the earrings to prevent the studs from sticking you at night when you sleep :)

  • It takes time to heal. It will be weeks.

  • Was this your first time or did you go higher up ?? Sleeping on them has something to do with the soreness also. If they are not red or have pus, crust around the holes, I would give yourself more time.

  • yours will be a little more sore because it is higher up in the ear and closer to the cartilage.

  • I had a shop tell me the same thing and asked my doc about switching them and he said if you remove the cheap ones and immediately replace them you are fine. If you have issues with the metal that very well could be the cause of your pain.

  • yes I wanted to put my gold ones in but had to buy theirs and use theirs. They are metal dipped in gold? I can't wear fake shit but they are supposedly okay for the 4-6 weeks they have to be in. I want to switch them out but scared it is too early??
